Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
To pass the unit, students must earn at least 50 marks, of which at least 15 marks must come from the problem-solving and critical thinking exercise.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Ouriginal will be used to check for plagiarism for the essay. Your assessments must be written in your words and citations used when referencing material from published sources. One Ouriginal preview will be available for students to check their assessment prior to submission. Do not submit any material that has already been formally submitted to this unit or other units.
